NASA EPSCOR: Adaptive Computing for Spacecraft

Grants and Contracts Details


Title: Adaptive Computing for Spacecraft Abstract This document proposes collaboration between researchers at the University of Kentucky, Honeywell Defense and Space Electronic Systems, and The New Millennium Program at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory to develop hardware and software architectures for spacecraft computers. As part of the collaboration, we will evaluate techniques that are being developed at UK for application in the development of the EAFTC Honeywell Architecture being developed as part of the New Millennium Program at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. This proposal outlines the problem of providing general purpose computing infrastructure in spacecraft and describes a plan for collaboration between Honeywell, JPL and UK to provide solutions. It is hoped that this collaboration will yield results that will be tested in the ST8 Mission scheduled to launch 2008 and evolve to become a standard architecture for future science and defense spacecraft. This proposal requests support for stipend and tuition for one graduate student for one year in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Kentucky and for travel support for the PI and student to visit Honeywell Defense and Space Electronic Systems and JPL researchers.
